Ill on Candy

April Fools Rush In

Times are tough. Look at all that mortifying cellulite.

Relax. We're talking about our butts. Sigh.

We're on a serious sugar high here. As if you didn't know. We confess, we've been unfaithful to our diet. Marshmallow Peeps! Woo-hoo. Oh, like you wouldn't. Nah, you're too strong. Yeah, right.

But, really, what do guys think about, anyway? We get it. Really. It's always a good time to exfoliate.

Have you walked through puddles in stiletto heels? No fun. But you're no wimp. You've left the house without makeup. Fess up. Cuz we've seen you.

Um, word to the wise? Don't think of heading off to the gym (you do go to the gym, don't you?) without the Luscious Duchess gym bag.

Ok, we admit, we saw Gwyneth with one. But it'll give you some va-va-voom before your kick-boxing class.

And that's not the sugar high talking here.

With apologies to Daily Candy. On second thought, nahhh.
Here's a way to do some good and have a good time doing it. The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation is allocated 4-6 house seats for each of the Broadway shows, a program started about 50 years ago by Rodgers and Hammerstein. Pay double the ticket price and half becomes a tax-deductible donation.

You'll be supporting the Foundation's important work with scientists who are seeking new ways to prevent, diagnose and cure all types of cancer. Secondarily, you'll also be helping Broadway, which, as you know, has been hurting lately. And you'll get great seats. To order tickets, call 212.455.0550, M-F, 9-4:00. For more information on the work Damon Runyon is doing, visit their website at
